VOlTy, NO. 10
LILLOOET,  B. C, FRIDAY, JANUARY 7, 1916.
$2 PER YEAR
Our Returned Soldiers
The establishment of the Soldiers' Aid Commission for Ontario, of which the Secretary is
Mr. C. N, Cochrane, Parliament
Buildings, Toeonto, is the first result of the report recently issued
by the Hospitals Commission, and
the forerunner of others.
The care of the soldier who
has returned to Canada, mutilated or weakened as a result of
active service, is the prime duty
of Canadians, For some months
the Canadian Patriotic Fund has
been endeavouring to ensue that
the men already back from Europe should suffer no want. This
work has been voluntarily undertaken by local committees of the
Fund, although in most instances their time is fully occupied
with the task of making provision for the families of the soldiers.
Each soldier is interviewed at
Quebec by a representative of
the Fund and a confidential report sent by the latter to the
patriotic committee of the town
to which the soldier is going.
This serves the two-fold purpose
of protecting the Fund against
the greedy or unscrupulous and
giving the local committee information that is helpful in finding
employment for the deserving.
Not every man who returns to
Canada wearing His Majesty's
uniform it included in the latter
category, but the great majority
have done their duty in the fullest degree. To the latter it has
been ihe privilege of the Fund to
present a small badge bearing
the words. "For service"at the
Front." The men who are wear
ing these badges are the worthiest citizens that we can acknowledge. Like charity, that badge
should be allowed to cover a
multitude of sins.
The work that the Canadian
Patriotic Fund can do for returned soldiers, however, is limited
by Act of Parliament, and it has
been specifically enacted that no
assistance can be given by the
fund to "any person who is in
receipt of any gratuity, pension
or allowance paid by His Majesty
or by any foreign government in
consequence of incapacity or
death occurring as aforesaid."
Partly on this account and largely because the pensions and gratuities paid to incapacitated men
are oft-times admittedly inadequate, it has been necessary to
establish a Hospitals Commission
and Disablement Fund. The officials of the latter, in their report to the Federal Government,
reccommended among other measures, that provincial commissions
be formed for the purpose of supplementing these pensions either
by monetary prants or by free
training in various trades. The
Soldiers' Aid Commission of Ontario, as we have said abo/e, is
the first step in this direction.
Already it has announced its intention of mobolizing the manufacturers of Ontario and we do
not doubt that the process will be
facilitated by the manufacturers
themselves. Others also will be
asked to lend their aid in discharging a great national duty
and there is every prospect that
in Canada at least the traditional
tragedy of the returned soldier
will have no place.

Masquerade
The much looked forward to
Masquerade is now an accomplished fact.
The dancing commenced about
ni.ie o'clock and continued till
11.30, when the judges stepped
to the centre of the hall and announced the prize winners.
The dancers and audience, a-
bout seventy in number, repaired
to the Victoria Hotel for supper,
which, report says, was a masterpiece of culinary production,
After supper dancinig was resumed and the merriment pre-
\ ailed to the accompaniment of
the Professors Maker and Sebring
orchestra until the small hour_
of the morning.
Much credit is due Ray Powers
for the able management of the
evening's programme, which all
enjoyed exceedingly.
The prize winners were; Mrs.
D. Hurley, (as queen), Mrs, G.
Prosser (as Chinese lady), and
Mose Taylor (as cowboy).

Pioneer Pssses Away
We regret to announce the
death of Mr. W. M. Bro»vn of
Pavilion, who died at Eagle Point
Oregon, U.S.A. on the 23rd of
December last.
Our readers will remember Mr.
Brown arri ved here on the 10th
of December from his ranch very
seriously ill, the journey to Oregon probably proved too hard
for him and he passed away in
his 78th year and was buried at
Jacksonville on the 24th of December.
Mr. Brown was an Englishman
by birth but had made his home
in Canada for a large number of
years. He was intimately acquainted and respected in Lillooet
district. He was the first member for Lillooet district and represented this section in the Provincial Legislature in 1874. He
subsequently kept the Union Hotel at Revelstoke and was very
active in Municipal affairs and
served as Mayor for many years.
For the last few years he has
been living on his ranche on the
Fraser river.
Jack McConnell, well known as
editor of the Saturday Sunset
and later of the Daiiy Sun, of
Vancouver, has purchased H. H.
Steven's paper, The Western Call
and will jump into the journalistic field again. There will be
more rain and less snow in Vancouver when McConnell starts
along the editoaial trail. Here's
luck in your new enterprise.

Mr. J. Chisholm, who is training for overseas service, was a
guest of Mr. and Mrs. M. Foster
during the New Year.
A number of friends met at
the hatchery last evening to entertain Mr. Hickman who is
leaving this week for the coast.
An "old time smoker" took
place in the Excelsior Hotel last
week' A good programme was
presented and a very enjoyable
tim» was spent by all.    .
School opened this week with
Miss E. Wiegand in charge of the
Lillooet school; Miss Griffiths at
Pachequa. and Mr. Fournier at
Seton Lake.
Mr. Peter Lewis is anticipating a trip to the coast in the
near future. He is shipping his
big aute to the coast to have it
over-hauled.
Mr. and Mrs. George Carson
and son, Miss Sebring. Ernie
Carson, and J. Ackers, of Pavilion, were visitors to town this
week; they attended the Masquerade on the 4th.
We notice that during the past
week a handrail has been placed
on the Church of England steps.
This is a good improvement and
we understand that Mrs. T. P.
Reed is the generous donor.
Little Girl-A loaf, please.
Shopkeeper—Bread's gone up
a ha'penny this morning.
Little Girl-Well, give me one
of yesterday's.
Mrs. Tarr—Sister Sobstock has
jest got a divorce from her hus-

Mrs. Wombat-Don' say? How

The Bible tells us we should
love our neighbors," said the
good deacon. "Yes, but the
Bible was written before our
neighbors lived so close," replied the mere man.

you go?"
Wise Son —"I would remain
here. But where would you go.

Canadian Patriotic Fund
The Duke of Connaught, Governor General of Canada, president of the Canadian Patriotic
Fund, has asked the press to publish the following:
Somewhat over a year ago, as
president of the Canadian Patriotic Fund, I made an appeal to
the people of the Dominion for
funds to assist the families of
the gallant men who were going
to the front. Though anticipating a generous response, I was
hardly prepared for th« magnfi-
cent manner in which the call
was met. Moneys have poured
into the treasury of the fund until the total contributions have
reached and exceeded six million
dollars.
Large, however, as this sum
appears, it has not greatly exceeded current demands and, if
peace were declared in the immediate future, the entire surplus
on hand would be required before
all the men ef the Expeditionary
force could again return home.
To-day there are 25,000 families, comprising, it is estimated,
80,000 individuals, dependent on
the Patriotic fund.
While further recruiting the
demands upon the funds will,
with each succeeding month, continue te grow, so that it is estimated that, should the war continue during 1916. a sum amounting to some $8,000,000 and probably more will be required. This"
would, however, only mean $1
per head of the population for
the people of Canada, and it is
little indeed to ask of those who
remain at home in comparison
with the sacrifice in life and limb
of those who are fighting in defence of the Nation.
In spite of all the various calls
that have been made for funds to
aid our soldiers and sailors and
the magnificent response that
has been made in each and every
case, I still feel assured that the
warm hearts of all Canadians
will respond to this further appeal to enable the Patriotic Fund
to continue its splendid work
during 1916 and take care of the
families of those who are fighting
for their Sovereign, the Empire,
and the Dominion, on the battlefields of Europe and on the High
Seas,
(Signed)

Pres., Canadian Patriotic Fund

Wedding
Last month Fred Smyth got married,
and his old friend, Fred Simpson, has the
following to say about it in his Victorian
paper:
"Fred Smyth, of the Princeton Star,
has started to chop kindling wood and
build fires. We heard that he has been
married but this is official. The bride is
Mrs. Rena Brsdbury, ol Minneapolis, and
they were married in Spokane. We have
talked with tears in our eyes in years
gone by, urging Fred to take the fatal
step, but he always gave one of those
hearty laughs and eyed us with suspicion.
We want to extend congratulations to Mr.
Smyth, for he is a lucky man; and while
we are at it we might as well congratulate Mrs. Smyth, as she has one of the
best fellows on earth for a husband, who
knows how to cook, wash dishes, split
wood and shovel snow. When he gets
over the habit of eating off the corner
of the stove with a cat on his shoulder
and a dog by his side, she will be able
to take him out and eat with the neighbors." THE PROSPECTOR

Seed Grain Should be Given a
Germination Test
Germination tests made on
oats, wheat and barley this
at the Dominion Seed Labor-
tory, at Calgary show that
there are considerable quantities of oats and barley, particularly in Alberta and Sas-
Katchewan which are unfit
for seed. The Average percentage germination for Alberta oats is 68 per cent and
none of the samples of Alberta oats received have germinated up to the standard which
is 95 per cent. Moreover the
average preliminary count
which is made at the end of
six days is as low as 35 per
cent. Good seed oats should
give a preliminary count of
85 per cent to 90 per ceratand
a final (14 day) count of 90
per cent to 98 per cent of vital seeds. Samples of oats
received from Saskatchewan
are somewhat■ better. The
average preliminary count is
50 per cent and the average
final count is 86 per cent.
Many samples show evidence
of frost injury, these always
giving low percentages of vital seeds, both in the preliminary and final counts. Alberta barley has also given
low germination percentages
The average preliminary (6
day) count is 52 per cent and
the average final (14 day)
count is 70 per cent. These
figures are very low and indicate that considerable proportions of Alberta oats and
barley and Saskatchewan
oats are weak in vitality and
undesireable for seed purpose.
As one of the first essentials for a good crop of any
kind is g x>d seed, it is important that only seed with
strong germination energy
and a high percentage of
germinable seeds should be
used. The germination energy of a sample is indicated
by the percentage of seeds
which germinate during the
first four or five days of the
test. The prliminary count
therefore is a index of the
germination energy. If, for
example, the preliminary
count on a sample of oats is
25 per cent the germination
energy of the sample is very
low, but if the preliminary
count is 90 per cent tbe germination energy is strong.
Two samples may vary as
widely as this in the preliminary count but may contain

Commencing at a post planted at the

the same percentage of vital
seeds in which case the final
counts would be the same. If
the final counts only were
considered one of these samples would be thought to be
as good as the other, while
in reality one is good seed
and the other undesirable for
use as seed. The sample with
a high preliminary count will
withstand unfavorable weather conditions at the time
of seeding very much better
than the other. It will give
a more even stand on the
field and a crop which will in
all probability ripen somewhat earlier.
Farmers should satisfy themselves before seeding time
next spring that their seed
grain is of the best quality.
This can only be done by a
germination test conducted
either at home or at the Dominion Seed Labortory at
Calgary. Samples up to 25
in number will be tested at
the Seed Laboratory free of
charge for any individual or
company in one year. Above
this number twenty-five cents
per test is charged.
Samples from Manitoba,
Saskatchewan, Alberta and
British Columbia for test
should be addressed to the
Dominion Seed Laboratory,
Box 1684, Calgary, Alberta,
and postage paid by the sender. It is unnecessary to send
stamps fcr return postage.
For wheat, oats, barley and
seed of similar size, about
half a tea cupful should be
sent for test; for seeds of
smaller size such as flax, red
clover, timothy, etc., half
this quantity is sufficient. If
more than one sample of the
same kind of seed is sent for
test they should bear some
distinguishing mark or number.
